## Gasket Torque Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Gasket Torque.

Tg =F*D*k / 1000

- Where Tg is the Gasket Torque (N-m)
- F is the bolt load (N-m)
- D is the diameter (mm)
- k is the nut factor (k-value)

To calculate the gasket torque, multiply the bolt load by the diameter, the multiply again by the nut factor, then finally divide by 1000.

## How to Calculate Gasket Torque?

The following example problems outline how to calculate the Gasket Torque.

**Example Problem #1**

- First, determine the bolt load (N-m). In this example, the bolt load (N-m) is given as 50 .
- Next, determine the diameter (mm). For this problem, the diameter (mm) is given as 20 .
- Next, determine the nut factor (k-value). In this case, the nut factor (k-value) is found to be 40.
- Finally, calculate the Gasket Torque using the formula above:

Tg =F*D*k / 1000

Inserting the values from above and solving yields:

Tg =50*20*40 / 1000 = 40 (N-m)

**Example Problem #2**

Using the same method as above, determine the variables required by the equation. For this example problem, these are provided as:

bolt load (N-m) = 60

diameter (mm) = 40

nut factor (k-value) = 80

Enter these given values yields:

Tg =60*40*80 / 1000 = 192** **(N-m)
